An Australian Capital Territory-wide program of dialogue, events and exhibitions responding to the current climate crisis Aquifer brings a Territory-wide focus to incite the activation of conversations on the impacts of climate change drawing attention to our citizen responsibilities to act now at a time when the global pandemic dominates media cycles. They believe artists are integral in the provocation of meaningful dialogue around the existential threats of fire, drought, and ecocide due to human-induced climate change through their practice. Local and interstate artists and galleries from across Canberra have joined forces in vigorous unison to engage in the climate crisis dialogue to coincide with the ANU Institute for Climate, Energy and Disaster Solutions (ICEDS) ANU Climate Update 2022. This suite of exhibitions across the Australian Capital Territory demonstrates the inherent urgency for people to all act now to preserve the fragility of the environment for future generations.
